State table size
« on: November 09, 2005, 04:34:26 am »
Hi all,

My company whant's a redundant router solution. I am verry interesting in the solution pfsense because the inplementation of connection syncrhonisation (pfsync). But when i look at the system overview i see at state table size 52/10000. Is this meaning that the maximal of states in pfsense is 10000? Because we have a large company, > 400 hosts is 10000 for a state table not enought.

Has anybody experiance with a redundante cluster with carp and pfsync in a large company as seen on http://www.pfsense.com/mirror.php?section=tutorials/carp/carp-cluster-new.htm?

10K states is the pf and pfSense default.  It can be changed in the advanced settings screen.

Not with pfSense, but yes.  I've been running such a setup on OpenBSD 3.5 since it released, no complaints and am looking forward to my next upgrade (which will probably be OpenBSD 3.9, not pfSense).
